1 Grüezi Shanghai Newsletter of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai November 2013 Word from the Consul General Dear Swiss Friends, dear Friends of Switzerland, A most successful year in the bilateral relations between Switzerland and China, marked by the signing of the Free Trade Agreement, a new Double Taxation Agreement and numerous high-level visits on both sides, is drawing to an end. In Shanghai, the bilateral highlight was the visit of Federal Councillor Alain Berset at the helm of a Health and Medtech delegation in mid August It is encouraging to see that the Swiss interest in China increasingly goes beyond the economic sphere and turns to areas such as health care, culture, education, tourism and others. While the economy continues to be at the heart of the Sino-Swiss relations, especially in the Yangtze Delta, it is important to diversify them and to develop a network of bilateral contacts in a wide range of areas. This furthers the mutual understanding and provides our partnership with China with additional muscle and strength. In this issue of Grüezi Shanghai, most of these emerging fields are addressed and I hope you will find some interesting reading. Consul General Heinrich Schellenberg Indeed, it has been a pleasure for me to see over the last three years the growing intensity and expansion of our relations with our host country and to be, together with all of you, part of this continuous development! Yours sincerely, Heinrich Schellenberg Consul General

13 Newsletter of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai November Grande Dame of Swiss Travel Journalism Interview with Charlotte Peter Charlotte Peter sits on a roof terrace in Shanghai overlooking The Bund. "This is the city and the country of the 21st century", declares the 89 year-old native of Zurich enthusiastically, casting her gaze over the skyline of Pudong. Peter has travelled to China more than a hundred times since 1960 both as a journalist and with countless tourist groups. For her first Chinese visa Peter had to wait three long years. In 1960 her persistent efforts were finally rewarded. Via Moscow and the Trans-Siberian Railway she journeyed to the Chinese capital, where she stayed at the "Peking Hotel". The travel guide at the time, a nice elderly gentleman, mentioned how charming he found the bound "lotus feet" of Chinese ladies. An outrage that Mao finally did away with thankfully, says Peter, incensed. Peter and Nerlich at Huashan Mysterious Grottoes Peter during her visit at swissnex When asked what the key to China s successful transformation from the country of 1960 to that of 2013 was, Peter s unwavering answer is: China is the only ancient civilization that has survived. The country has kept its language, its medicine, sport and arts." And the most important thing: "The state is able to deal with the masses. It overcomes infrastructure challenges with exceptional speed, such as high-density urban development, and reconstruction after natural disasters such as the Wenchuan earthquake in 2008", Peter says. The doyenne of Swiss travel journalism remembers fondly the first tour group from Zurich that she guided to Kunming, Zurich s new partner city, at the beginning of the 1980s. Her idea of presenting swans from Lake Zurich as a gift was greeted warmly by the mayor of the city at that time, Thomas Wagner. And the descendants of those swans still swim on Dian Lake today in the capital of China s southwestern province of Yunnan.

14 Newsletter of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai November The Oldtimers arrive in Shanghai Silk Road Rally 2013: from Istanbul to Shanghai After having followed 12,000 km of mythical roads through six countries in less than two months, the oldtimers of the New Silk Road Rally finally crossed the finish line on Thursday, 24 th October The arrival of the vintage cars at the Shanghai Hongqiao Guest House in Shanghai was supported by the Consulate General of Switzerland and the Consul General Mr. Heinrich Schellenberg welcomed the participants warmly. Mr. Dao Shuming, Vice- President of the Shanghai Public Diplomacy Association and Chairman of the Friendship Association of Shanghai China People s Political Consultative Conference, was also present on the finish line to meet the competitors. An honour guard composed of bikes of the Shanghai s Harley-Davidson Club and a performance of Lion-dancers welcomed the drivers. In the evening, a reception at the Consul General s residence was held in recognition of their achievement. A Bentley Mk VI of 1949 from Zürich Mr. Schellenberg and Mr. Dao Shuming welcoming the participants A Volvo Amazon 122S of 1965 crosses the finish line Leaving Shanghai s sister-city Basel on 26 th August, the fleet travelled through Italy, Austria, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan before finally arriving in China two months later. 56 days of road separates Istanbul from Shanghai, which is almost four times quicker than originally. This year, more than 40 people participated in the adventure, all Swiss. Consul General Mr. Schellenberg, closing the 2013 Silk Road Rally

15 Newsletter of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai November The Silk Road is one of the oldest trade routes in the world and has connected the continents of Asia and Europe for thousands of years. Not only goods such as spices, silk, porcelain and glass were transported, but the Silk Road also permitted the mobility from East to West and vice versa of people - merchants, scholars, armed forces -, as well as ideas, religions and cultures. Asked how he would define the "New Silk Road" and why he has chosen Shanghai and Basel as ending and starting point, Liu Guosheng, director of China Tours, vintages lover and ambassador of both cultures, answered that the starting and ending points of the ancient Silk Road were Xi'an and Rome. The two towns were at that time the centres of the East and the West worlds. Now Rome is no longer the centre of Europe and Xi'an no longer the centre of the East. Today Silk Road has a new meaning and it is, at least, 3000 km longer. The connection between East and West stretches from the Pacific to the Atlantic. Shanghai and Basel are city partners since 2008 and this year, the third Confucius Institute of Switzerland opened in Basel marking the cooperation of the East China Normal University in Shanghai and the University of Basel. Most of the oldtimers who crossed the finish line were constructed in the 50 s, but the quantity and the diversity of cars was impressive: Disparity in the type of vehicles -a modest Opel Rekord next to a luxurious Bentley-, in their style -a MG A roadster and a Volvo Kombi-, as in their conception years -Opel Rekord next to Citroën 11- is a characteristic of the rally adventures and of the Swiss vintage car park. Swiss Volvo waiting for new The fleet stopped on the road at different points of interest and culturally important areas. The fantastic places they explored include historic cities like Istanbul or Ankara, the breathtaking Southern Russia between the Black and Caspian Sea, the widths of Kazakhstan and the Fergana Valley, Pearls of the Silk Road as Khiva, Bukhara, Samarkand, Kashgar, Khotan, and Dunhuang and Grandiose landscapes such as the Taklamakan desert, the Tibetan plateau and the Gobi Desert. China highlights involved the Great Wall, the ancient imperial cities of Xi'an, Luoyang and Nanjing, the garden city of Wuxi and the metropolis of Shanghai.

16 Newsletter of the Consulate General of Switzerland in Shanghai November Swiss Cultural Presence in Autumn Hot months in Shanghai Autumn may bring Shanghai cooler weather. But nothing seems to hold the high flying emotion down in the city spoilt by all sorts of festivals, exhibitions and visits. X Sweden-Switzerland Online Campaign (ruidian-ruishi.com) Can you tell Sweden from Switzerland? It is no question at all for people from the two countries, but it is not the case for some Chinese people and even citizens from some western countries. In order to prevent confusion between Sweden and Switzerland - mainly because the first characters of the two countries are the same in Chinese, which is 瑞 and they both are located in Europe - the Consulate General has jointly launched an online campaign with the Consulate General of Sweden, inviting Chinese people to differentiate the two countries and win a trip to both of them. The campaign requires Chinese nationals to hand in a creative piece of work to distinguish the two countries in a humorous yet correct way. The launching ceremony at the beginning of September 2013 with the presence of two Consul Generals attracted a lot of local media attention. Over 30 media, including TV and newspapers, reported about the project. Furthermore, the launching raised the interest of the Swiss media, too, and 20 Minuten and Swissinfo featured about the campaign. To respond to the enthusiasm of local netizens, Consul General Mr. Schellenberg together with the Swedish Consul General Mrs. Viktoria Li held a live online Q&A on Weibo, one of the most popular social media platforms. More than 200 questions from local Weibo followers were received in only one hour and selected questions were immediately answered by the two diplomats. The winner shall be announced by the end of the year and the award-winning work will be presented in the next issue of this newsletter!
